Affectionately known as ‘the original Augie’s’ or ‘the mother ship’ this is actually the second location for the original store! Originally located behind the Carol Stream Fire Station #29, in a strip mall named Gina’s Plaza, Augustino’s began as a modest Italian Grocery Store. In the late 80’s Augie and Jerry built the current free standing building, doing much of the work themselves. Jerry even put down the tile floor himself, coming over each night after closing the doors on their first location to complete the work.
Now over thirty years later, customers enter through an 18 foot replica of a wurlitzer juke box and are greeted by lively banter and a whirl of activity. If the line is out the door, don’t be afraid - Augie’s is ALWAYS worth the wait.
NEW! Augie’s in Carol Stream has a fun little video gaming area, featuring five slot machines with a wide range of games available to our customers over 21 years of age. Each month a portion of our proceeds along with donations from our gaming customers are donated to a local pre-selected charity. At Augustino’s we’re enjoying the ability to “Play It Forward!”
